Evenflo recalls over 56,000 booster seats because children may be able to loosen internal harness

By John Dumoulin.

Evenflo Company, Inc., has recalled approximately 56,247 Transitions 3-in-1 Combination Booster Seats, model numbers 34411686, 34411695, and 34411029, produced from December 18, 2014, through January 29, 2016, because the central front adjuster (CFA) button that is used to loosen the seat’s internal harness may be within the child’s reach, allowing the child to activate the CFA and loosen the internal harness. If the internal harness is not tightened snugly around the child, the child would be at an increased risk of injury in the event of a crash, Evenflo warned. This safety issue only impacts the use of the seat in the forward-facing harnessed booster (22-65 lbs. and 28-50 in.) configuration (NHTSA Recall Notice, No. 16C003, Report receipt date: February 18, 2016).

Remedy. Evenflo will notify owners and provide a remedy kit that includes a newly designed seat pad and CFA assembly, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin during February 2016.

Contact information. Owners may contact Evenflo at www.transitions.evenflo.com or 1-800-233-5921. Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.
